Verdict:

For that classic all-American taste, nothing beats the rich and creamy Skippy, while for those on a health kick the Whole Earth and Equal Exchange peanut butters taste great and do you good, too. If you fancy something a little different why not try Damiano’s Roasted Almond Butter,  while Bulk Powder’s Cashew Butter is great for eating and cooking. Sun-Pat’s new tasty Rich Roast show that the future looks promising, too.
